the last blizzard in this city was 2011, 20 inches of snow. we'll see if this will set a record overnight. to give you an idea how big this storm is, how many states are affected tonight, this is a picture from nasa that we're looking at. you can see the storm right now stretches all the way north up in maine all the way down to the mid-atlantic and new jersey. there are near whiteout conditions across the northeast and i am in new york city where the mayor is warning the storm is unpredictable, he's been instruct is everyone to stay inside though there are a lot of the people out tonight. pictures of destruction from superstorm sandy are fresh in his mind and the mind of many people in the new york city area. new york city police commissioner ray kelly is here with me. we'll be talking in just a moment. we want to go to the north first and new england which has been getting pummeled through the day. this is one of the ten biggest storms in history. in boston right now, already breaking the record of 27 inches which was set ten years ago back in 2003. and that is the fear that made massac
sumatra, it's not going near major population centers. but yeah, if it hit a city, it would be a huge, huge impact. the truth is we have these things fly by us all the time. not this size but the day could come when we could have a visitor. >> what did you say? how long have they been tracking this one for? >> for more than 2 million miles. spotted way off in space out there, and in fact, you will not be able to see it with your naked eye. but if you had a pretty good telescope, you would be able to see a pinpoint of light passing by on february 15th. >> keep it a pinpoint of light, it never needs to get any closer than that. >> astronomer. >> he's just a magician. >> thank you very much. you can always follow what's going on here in "the situation room" on twitter, tweet me @wolfblitzer. "erin burnett outfront" starts right now. >>> "outfront" next, a monster blizzard slamming the northeast. starting in new york, it's going to be feet, not inches, of snow. plus we're going to go to boston which has been getting pummeled throughout the day. there have been dramatic and draconian actio
providence, right in front of city hall. there has not been a soul in sight in the last four hours that i have been here. that's how abandoned it is. an emergency vehicle drove up to see if we were doing all right here. i spoke to the governor today. i was with the mayor, i was in the emergency command center tonight, chris. their real concern, they said we know we're going to have power outages. the issue is how many. if the snow doesn't get more dry, if it doesn't get colder, frankly, they're expecting many power outages. they say a prolonged storm is what they fear. not only afterwards do they have the plowing issue. they have the snow removal issue. one thing that makes this very different than 1978, the governor told me that technology today is so much better. i saw the gps they have on their plows now. the technology is so much better that they are able to prepare in advance, get those plows exactly where they need to be, get the cars off the roads in advance, that they're not going to have the same issues. you had 26 deaths here in 1978 during that blizzard. and here you go, anothe
-breaking storm for them. new york city's probably going to be in the 12 to 18-inch range. here in boston, we are under blizzard warnings now. blizzard conditions expected with the prolonged time of wind and heavy snow. the snow is really picking up in boston right now. the radar showing it's all snow. temperatures there below freezing and the timing is such that the snow will continue to pick up over the next few hours. by nightfall, probably two to four inches of snow. blizzard conditions this evening. probably 25 to 40 hello mile-her hof sustained winds and through the night and even rising to 35 to 60-mile-per-hour range. 12 to 18 inches more falling and then tomorrow morning beginning to see it taper off and additional five inches could fall and blizzard conditions for a while longer, perhaps even after the snow tapers off and visibility will be very low. we'll continue to watch all of new england, as well as new york city, which is under that blizzard threat, as well. you're under a blizzard warning from new york northward and out toward long island and seeing the possibility of gusty w
of newark? >> the conditions are worsening. walked through all five wards of the city and checked on the crews and the conditions on the street. a lot of stranded cars now. a lot of people out that shouldn't be. so it's very perilous out there and people need to understand that. stay indoofrs and hunker down for the night. conditions will be bad throughout the morning tomorrow. this is not time to take this lightly. very dangerous conditions, especially around motor vehicle accidents. and we areal also on alert for possible power outages in newark if the wind starts to pick up. i'm grateful for the hundreds of workers we have out there from law enforcement to folks plowing and salting streets. a lot of work ahead. >> as the sun will begin to rise in a couple of hours is when, as you mentioned, we will get a better chance to see the damage done. hopefully the streets are cleared. first responders can get out and about. what's the biggest challenge, you think, come tomorrow morning? >> i think it is the mess and getting rid of this from our streets. and hopefully people will stay in
providence, rhode island. rare that you see a car going by. almost every business, city hall, everything is closed here, just like in massachusetts, the governor in connecticut also having that 4:00 ban on any cars and i wouldn't be surprised if it happens here very soon as well. i want to take you on our journey getting here. we just arrived here. it took us over five hours to get here from new york city, a trip that really shouldn't take any more than three hours. along the way, very slow going, light traffic. lots of snow plows but also some very serious accidents. we saw a jackknifed tractor-trailer that ran right into the median. we saw a huge semi that just fell off the side of the highway. we took a picture of that for you guys. that was consistent all the way up here. if you head up to maine, i want to show you some pretty dramatic video in maine. a 19-car pileup in maine. bottom line, the governor saying not a time for sightseeing, not a time for playing around. this is very, very serious. in 1978, 27 inches of snow, 26 deaths. they think this storm could be as bad or worse and
on the streets, you see cabs. not so much right now, huh? >> new york city, right? the city that never sleeps. this is a city that is in the middle of a deep slumber. when was the last time you saw the streets practically empty. look at the circle, columbus circle, practically empty. a couple cabs, maybe a snow plow if you're lucky, maybe a city bus. empty. it's like a white christmas today. isn't it? a winter wonderland. it is cold, i'll tell you that, but it's snowing and it's a quiet snow. not much wind going on. so really kind of a calm overhang on this evening in the middle of the night. the snow, though, is continuing to pile up. what i find interesting, though, is i really haven't seen many snow plows go by and the city has promised they were on patrol as of 7:00 tonight. perhaps they're in the boroughs in the neighborhoods making their way through. one interesting difference to this year, though, different from the blizzard that hit here in 2010, the city's kind of learned about it, learned from its mistakes, they have got kind of, brooke, a gps tracker of where the snow plows are. so
city's central park. my colleague, erica hill is, might i point out warm inside studio 1a. good morning. >> who drew the short straw? good morning. good morning to everyone at home. forecasters warning this storm would be a powerhouse. they were right on target. not very far from studio 1a, we have a look for you at times square. the crews there hard at work cleaning up the snow. also look for you in new jersey, strong winds and surf clashing along the jersey shore. and i do have to point out, when we first came in and you saw that shot of rockefeller plaza, you didn't see snow. that's because they have been up since the wee hours getting rid of all the white stuff. it almost looks as if there was no storm outside studio 1a. it's pretty amazing. >> yeah. let's bring folks up to date with the latest now, erica. at least one person is reported dead after a traffic accident in upstate new york. the snowfall totals across the northeast are substantial. in parts of connecticut, nearly three feet has fallen. boston and portland, maine, have reported snowfalls of up to 25 inches. here in new y
covering the major storm from all angles. we'll begin with the city that will get hit first, that is new york. alison kosik, do we understand if they're prepared? lost her. we'll go to susan candiotti in boston, another place the storm is hitting. we know there will be a lot, a lot, a lot of snow. are they ready? >> reporter: to put it bluntly, i think they are, we certainly hope they are. the city hopes bostonians are. certainly they and new englanders are used to huge nor'easters and blizzards like this. 35 years ago, you had the storm of '78, when they had more than 27 inches. this could rival those record amounts. we'll have to see what happens. but as of now, noontime is zero hour. a snow emergency has gone into effect and now people are being told that's it, get off the streets. if your car is there, it's going to ghettet towed. so certainly if take you a look at the store shelf, they are empty. it is clear that people have been fwg out within the last 24, 48 hours since these warnings began. buying all kinds of essential supplies, including nonperishable foods, water, batteries fl
compared to the great blizzard of 1978, if you can believe that. that is when the city is literally shutting down after a monster storm. what are we watching here. shoppers, gas station lines. folks who will be hitting the stores, hitting their neighborhoods trying to hunker down if they can for the weekend. right now it's a bad time to get around. more than 3,000 flights have already been canceled. that is for friday and saturday going into the weekend. we are watching boston as well. there are a lot of requirements, of course, to make sure that people are safe. as well as hospitals, getting around. and so they are requiring that all the vehicles get off the roads by 12:00 noon. we are also watching some real changes in the public transportation system. the public rail stopping at 3:30, we understand, this afternoon. there are already folks getting out there. you can imagine the officials. you can imagine the resources, the technology, the equipment that they are putting out onto the roads. 600 snow removers are out there already in place for this monster storm that is expected all
% of new york city but had more than half the deaths from hurricane sandy, 23 people died here. there are still an estimated 1400 people who are homeless. i was here three months ago because so many homes were damaged. this right here was a home. and you can see it is rubble and it has stayed rubble. this next door was heavy di damaged however they're rebuilt it. the family that rebuilt was hoping to move in but because of the blizzard they had to stop the work. there was so much concern in staten island because of what happened three months ago, just a couple of blocks away from here. a woman had her two children. her car was blown offer the road and she couldn't hold on to them. they found them later, 2 of the 23 that died and there still is to this day but as a matter of fact across the street you see that tent, people aren't living in that tent. it has been put up to provide hot feels for homeless people. when this started there were people who were homeless from sandy having luncheon side that tent. there's a great sense of relief that the blizzard wasn't as bad as it was
orleans police commander christopher goodly. it keeps things quiet. a welcome breather for a city racked by a chronically high murder rate. >> we have a homicide rate that is unnatural. >> new orleans saw 193 murders last year, its per capita rate of homicides nearly three times that of chicago. most of the victims, young african-american men shot to death. single mother of three and community outreach coordinator katherine hutton speaks for many in this community. >> like lord, what is it going to take? when are they going to stop it? >> the national focus on gun violence is applauded here, but the majority of the killing in new orleans is by handguns. is this gun conversation going on in washington too narrow? >> yes. the answer is yes. it is absolutely too narrow. and it's too simplistic. as though if you just ban assault weapons, somehow the murder rate in the country is going to go down automatically. it will not. >> mayor landrieu wants more than tougher gun laws. he wants the feds to help him put more cops on his streets. in the meantime, new orleans has gone after gun violence wi
you think the city's response has been so far to the blizzard? >> it's been great. they have given us a lot of notice and the signs on the highways and the emergencies on the internet and other signs across the city. it's been -- they have prepared us well. >> i know you guys also stocked up on supplies. earlier, some of the supermarkets in the city were running out of milk, running out of bread. i think you have plenty of other types of supplies to keep you busy. >> we might have other supplies to keep us busy, but we are also, you know, do have supplies and water and things like that. but you know, we are trying to realize that we will be here for the weekend and trying to make sure we have everything that will keep us sustainable through that time period. >> they were telling me earlier, anderson, they hadn't seen snow like this in a few years? >> long time. >> a few years, gut obviously, we still have a lot more to go before the night is over. >> jason, we'll be checking with you. we'll be on the air for two hours and more coverage after that, so all night long. a short drive down
there with the the snow blowers and shovels clearing it for the guests. but a lot of the city sidewalks have not been touched. a couple right here behind me walking in the street. the streets have become the sidewalks. obviously people who have pets have to come outside to let their pets do what they need to do. and the street's the best place to do it. we are starting to see some traffic. and i believe that's interstate 95 over here to my left. i am seeing cars and trucks passing down through the interstate. but keep in mind that it's going to be awhile. i don't know if governor chaffey is going to open the roadways back up today. again the priority is to get the roadways cleared. it's going to be tougher for crews to do that if people decide let's go out and take a look and see how bad things are. they want you to stay home. give them a day. and then maybe tomorrow things are going to be a little bit better. >> stay home. watch it on tv. you can get out perhaps better tomorrow. ron mott thanks for the report. >>> let's go to another area buried under deep snow. that's connecticut. we have nbc's ron
of the snow is east of new york city. everywhere you see pink through here, that's a foot of snow or more, and the purple is 20 to 30 inches of snow. that's from portland, maine, to boston, to providence, that's still to come. you already have 6 on the ground. there's plus 20. that's still a good snowfall. albany, you'll see about 6 to 10 more. down toward new york city, it appears you're almost in this dry area where there will be 8 to your north, 4 to your south, but not a lot more to come still in the city compares to what is on long island, over a foot still to come here. and this is the danger zone, just snowing everywhere out here. it's coming down in buckets because at the low comes through here, its closest position is going to be to boston, not new york city. that's why snow is not going to be as heavy in the city as in boston because the low is much closer there. then by tomorrow afternoon, literally, this thing is gone. saturday, 4:00, 5:00, the snow is completely over. only the wind is left. erin. >> what's the bottom line? there have been competing models. someone said the eu
, nine percent of the crime guns in the city of chicago could be traced to the state of mississippi. it is clear that we need a national solution. let me describe briefly that key features of this new legislation of assault weapons ban a 2013. the bill and the sale, transfer, and importation and manufacturing of 167 specifically named semi automatic assault weapons. it bans any other assault weapon, which is defined as semi automatic that can have a detachable 90s in. -- magazine. these features were developed for military weapons to make them more affect the of and efficient at killing people in close combat situations. the bill prohibits large capacity ammunition devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds. this is a crucial part of this legislation. these large magazines make a gun especially dangerous because they allow a shooter to fire 100 rounds are more without having to pause to reload. in many instances like the tragic shooting of congresswoman gabrielle giffords and tucson, arizona, it was only when the shooter had to change a magazine when or others have the chance

in new york city, up to about a foot of snow. power has been knocked out to nearly 650,000 customers, most of them in massachusetts and rhode island, and more than 1,800 flights canceled so far, that on top of the 3,600 that never took off on friday in advance of the pieces of storm, erica. >> you can understand why this storm is giving snow plows, snow blowers and shovels a real run for their money. also adding to the wintry mess here on the ground, hurricane-force winds in some areas, creating blizzard conditions. out on long island, up to 100 cars stuck for hours, in what is normally a busy expressway. talk about the size of the storm. look at this. it really gives you a sense, as it spreads across the region. these are scenes from states, making its way up the east coast. all that you can make up from the eastern portion of the united states is the tip of florida there, lester. >> yes this is a massive one. coverage across the northeast this morning. reporters standing by in hartford and boston. let me show you what's going on in central park. in many ways, this belies the danger

'connor was the city's first female mayor. this morning the headlines are about her gambling habit to which she won and lost $1 billion over a decade. her excuse for doing it may surprise you. >>> we do want to begin this morning with that carnival cruise ship. a passenger has filed a first lawsuit against the cruise line company. mark potter is in mobile, alabama, with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. that lawsuit was filed in miami by a passenger from texas seeking damages. she accuses carnival cruise lines of negligence and fraud and says that she was "injured as a result of the unseaworthy, unsafe, unsanitary, and generally despicable conditions in "aboard" the "triumph." a spokesperson says the company has not seen the lawsuit and cannot comment. meantime, the "triumph" has been moved to a shipyard in mobile, where extensive repairs and cleanup begin as the official incident investigation also begins. because the ship is registered in the bahamas and the event occurred in international waters, the bahamian authority is the lead investigator. both the u.s. coast guard
the city. he's stuck. he came into this church parking lot. was going to plow it, got halfway through, but the conditions proved to be too much, so he's been struggling to get out of that particular position for the past 20 minutes or so. but again, anderson, there is a fleet of some 5,000 vehicles like this that are out on the streets throughout the state, plowing roads. plowing the primary routes, plowing parking lots and secondary routes like the one that you see here. looks like he's finally going to make his way out of here, but we're going to move back just a little bit. as you know, anderson, in addition to the fleet of equipment that they have out in the streets, the governor has also enacted a plan banning basically all vehicles on the streets except for emergency vehicles. that has certainly helped. it's kept a number of people off the street out here in boston, in massachusetts, as the storm continues to barrel down. i can tell you just from the experience here, it's an icy, wet, blinding, bitter type of snow. it just hits your face, it's painful being out here. so this is

in a century. the warnings could not be clearer. >> stay off the streets of our city. basically, stay home. >> reporter: a snowstorm that hit the great lakes with snow and ice is joining another storm in the south to form a monster nor'easter. as many as 23 million people are in the path. some coastal areas hit by hurricane sandy are in the bull's-eye of a prolonged storm. some of sandy's survivors still living in tents on new york's staten island will have to move. floods threaten the northeast shoreline for thousands of miles. it's a dreaded sense of deja vu. along the new jersey shore. >> i think i'm going to have to move my things upstairs and see what happens. >> in case it floods? yeah. >> reporter: salt truck and plow operators from pennsylvania to maine are ready for a long haul. >> it will probably be a long four days. you know? which is tough on anybody. >> reporter: fears of power outages sent people to the supermarkets to stock up. sales of generators are brisk, and travelers have been changing plans, rebooking flights to avoid agonizing airline delays. >> they relaxed their po
. that will cause a whole new set of problems. north of the city in salisbury beach, evacuations, this morning, big trouble. they had to bring in an end load tore bring out one of the families there when that high tide headed around 10 a.m even the little bit before that, the waters were coming in and crashing into the low lying homes. and plumb island, beautiful vacation area off of the shore threw in the north, also facing difficulties. at least one home really damaged up there. so these ocean waters proved to be very, very powerful. people are expecting a lot of snow, but the ocean can have just as much of an impact for these low lying areas. today it's about clean-up and safety. there was at least one death today in the city, an 11-year-old boy who been helping his father dig out the family car. it had been covered in snow. this young boy got cold and asked his father if he could hop the exhaust had been covered, so he was overwhelmed by carbon monoxide. the emt's tried to revive him and the firefighters tried to revive him and they were unsuccessful. so the authorities here in boston are askin
of you. and let me read this. the city of mcallister is currently work hard to rebalance our budget after a sudden downturn in our revenue over the past two months. as you know, municipalities are required to maintain a balanced budget. it is a law in oklahoma you have to have a balanced budget. so what has he done? first step, we implemented a hiring freeze. they reassigned workers. refer knew shortfall was stimulussed at $1.2 million so every other expense category including supplies, repatience maintenance, fuel, travel, training consulting services and legal services had their budgets reduced. in other words they responded. none of these cuts are without pain but all will be accomplished while maintaining essential city services. now, for mcallister, a $1.2 million budget cut is a bigger hit than we're talking about with sequestration. and yet if the mayor of a 25,000 population community can make the adjustments to serve his constituency without decreasing services why can't we? and i had a ask unanimous -- and i'd ask unanimous consent to enter this into the record. the presiding of

this and not cut that? that? recently the president had a series of press conferences. he embarked on a 100-city tour to warn americans of the sequester. he showed up at norfolk news -- or newport news, rather, in virginia. almost exactly one year after three of my colleagues were down there, senator graham, senator ayotte and senator mccain, saying in a year there is going to be a big problem. a year later the president shows up and says this is going to be a big problem. you know, the president proposed the sequester in 2011. he insisted that it become law. he even threatened to veto a bill. he said, i'll veto any bill to replace the sequester, late last year. and suddenly now he's changed his mind and all of these terrible things going to happen, and it's unavoidable. it's only unavoidable if we refuse to cut things that can be couple of the federal government has grown 19% in its spending in the last four years. the sequester would cut 2.4% or 2.5%. anybody in america whose budget has grown 19% in the last two years can go back now to where they were the last four years, rather, can go back
